This paper outlines preliminary research to develop an auditory archaeology at Çatalhöyük during the 2004 field season. Auditory archaeology aims to foster a dialogue and instigate a research agenda acknowledging the important influence and significance of the sound environment in past daily life. Research at Çatalhöyük is a site specific application and concerns sounds associated with the built environment involving studies within and between surviving and reconstructed buildings at the site. The aim is to represent the prehistoric aural environment at Çatalhöyük and assess its potential social significance. In particular, research aims to contextualise past sounds and ground them in the web of material evidence at Çatalhöyük. An introduction to auditory archaeology and previous research is provided followed by an outline of the different approaches applied in the 2004 season. The paper concludes with a suggested program of further research.
